El Mirador House

Developed by CC Arquitectos, the spectacular El Mirador House in Mexico is a recreational space that seeks to maximize the location and orientation of the site to provide the user with a significant view of the beautiful lake in the region. It was designed based on respecting the forest where it is located, anchored to its topography and reducing its constructive impact. The beautiful interior is finished with neutral-toned textiles and tarnished metal fittings that harmonise with the coloring of the property´s stone and timber walls. The 459-square-metre residence is half-buried in a slope, with the aim of being protected from environmental conditions, and is located on a 95-hectare estate where guests can enjoy long horseback rides.
